Bio and Links
Bio Photo Began working on the family line in 1973 and the wife's line in 1976, doing things the old-fashioned way--Visiting County Courthouses, Trolling Spooky Graveyards, writing countless letters, and making phone calls to strangers. I have gotten many a helpful boost from others to keep the project going, and must say that I've found many helpful people here on Find-A-Grave. The Internet has made searching a lot easier, I wish we had that back in the day. I have connected with others in my family lines because of Find-A-Grave. As of now, I am my family's only Gatekeeper.
To the right are virtual cemeteries, as this is for our children, containing our ancestors (Paternal Line), and both my late wives' ancestors (Maternal Line), Siblings of all lines (Extended Siblings), Step-Family members (Step-Families), Ancestor's Sibling's Spouses (Sibling Spouses), and descended family members of all lines, including spouses (Extended Relatives). Also there is a place for those friends and others I've known from the Past, plus some virtual cemeteries of other interests of mine.

RE: William Keyser
I haven't done much on John's branch of the family but here is an excerpt from an email stating he dies in Wayne County WV in 1847:

Education was very limited during this period, schoolhouses were private enterprises. Jack had a schoolhouse built on a small point on a hill near Dock's Creek Road (a cut-off from Rt 75) It was in use until 1890, when it was torn down and the logs used again to buildl another schoolhouse near the bottom of the hill. The original school site was built on Lot #22 of the Savage Grant, purchased from Levi Shortridge, who had purchased it from Soldier Philip Gatewood. It is now encompassed within the expanded Dock's Creek Cemetery. Dock's Creek Cemetery was originally "God's Acre" donated by Keyser for anyone's burial. The small private Keyser Cemetery located on Rt 75 is on part of the land given by John to son David.

Also if you google Keyser-Keysor Cousins you can download the original family genealogy from the 1950's which is on Bridget Keyser's webpage

RE: William Keyser
Thanks for the info.
Unfortunately the Charles Sebastian Keyser as William's father is misinformation that has been propagated throughout the internet and is now an unstoppable force.
I have been doing dna research on the Keyser family for a couple years and can say that Keziah's parents are correct but William's are still unknown. His mother maynhave been a Fleming based on dna but his father is still unknown.
Google : Kaiser DNA Project and you can see a y dna paternal line comparison between male descendents of William and of Charles Keyser. They are not even the same haplotype so cannot be paternally related. William's is I1D1 which is Nordic Scandinavian and Charles is R1B (if I recall) which is central Germany.
The only Keyser's I found that may be related are in Northumberland, Va and there is a possible brother named James Keyser that martied Sally Power and had a son named William and a daughter named Keziah. If I could get a hold of the y-dna from one of his descendents I would no for sure.

RE: Brenda Sue York Horan

Making rounds to update pictures, thought I'd give you notice as I know you were very interested in family members there.

Thank you for the vote. I was pretty shocked but thought it was kinda cool to see someone so "famous".

RE: Angel for Mathew
My heart goes out to you, what a special memory. My daughter saw the doctor yesterday and things are looking really good with this baby, it will be her first living child. She is 14 weeks now, so our hopes are high :)

RE: 'Childe' York, 1930
Yes Chuck, I do totally understand I have 5 daughters and we have lost 4 babies to miscarriages, so I too feel they should have a name. I just thought it was a type o because of the e, but now I've learned something about names, great way to add a little touch of something special:) Thanks for sharing the meaning to me of "Childe" my daughter is now pregnant again, so God willing she'll have a baby this next Jan. Thank you and God Bless !

RE: Another Marshall Descendant ?
Hello Chuck! It's great to meet you! It has been really exciting to meet other Marshall descendants, especially through this site. I have seen your name on a number of the Marshall memorials on this site and I can't tell you how appreciative I have been to find all this information linked together so cleanly. It has helped as I have only just started building a genealogy file of my own. I look forward to trading information in the future!
